  • Description

    ISRAELI AUTHORITIES ON TUESDAY CONTINUED THEIR STRICT SECURITY PRECAUTIONS WHEN THE FORMER WEST GERMAN DEFENCE MINISTER, HERR STRAUSS, VISITED BOTH THE FOREIGN MINISTER, MRS. GOLDA MEIR, AND THE FINANCE MINISTER, MR LEVI ESHKOL. HERR STRAUSS IS SPENDING 12 DAYS IN ISRAEL ON WHAT IS DESCRIBED AS A "STUDY TOUR" AT THE INVITATION OF THE DEFENCE MINISTRY.

    HIS VISIT HAS LED TO SEVERAL ANGRY DEMONSTRATIONS AND SHARP CRITICISM FROM THE NATIONAL HERUTH PARTY, THE LEFT-WING MAPAM PARTY AND THE COMMUNISTS. AT THE HEBREW UNIVERSITY IN JERUSALEM, STUDENTS PARADED CARRYING BANNERS WITH THE SLOGAN "STRAUSS - RAUS!" (STRAUSS - OUT!).

    THE ISRAELI PRIME MINISTER, MR. BEN-GURION, HAS ISSUED A STATEMENT SAYING THAT HERR STRAUSS WAS NEVER A NAZI AND SHOULD NOT BE CONDEMNED MERELY BECAUSE HE WAS A GERMAN. FOR HIS PART, THE FORMER GERMAN MINISTER HAS EXPRESSED REGRET THAT "MISUNDERSTANDINGS AND DIFFICULTIES" SURROUNDED HIS TRIP.
